Taliban delegation in Pakistan on Wednesday

Islamabad, Dec 17 (TIWN) A delegation from Taliban's Qatar- based political office is reaching Islamabad on Wednesday on a three-day trip for consultations on ongoing Afghan peace process.

Two Taliban political sources in Doha told Reuters they would also hold a meeting in Pakistan among their leadership.  The Taliban last visited Islamabad in August, just before the peace talks with the Afghan government began in Doha as the United States pushed for a political settlement while it withdraws troops from the war-torn country.  After reaching an agreement on procedural ground rules this month, negotiators representing the government and the Taliban are taking a break until Jan. 5 when they will continue to work on an agenda.
